Vancouver, you’re the best! There will be plenty of sun this weekend, plus some big events around the city? We must be in deep winter slumber. Nevertheless, we will wake up knowing we can’t go wrong if we choose these options.
Here are the top 10 things to do in Vancouver this weekend.
Gear up for the Super Bowl
This weekend is the Super Bowl, and we’re sure a couple of your friends have already asked what you’re doing. Here is a list of some of the best places in the city to kick back and watch it.
Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a treat
Valentine’s Day falls on Monday, but there’s no reason to miss out on all the great treats and meals in the city this weekend! This is especially true if you missed out on that all-important Monday night reservation at 6 PM.

Watch a Canucks game
What about a little cross-country rivalry? Of course! In what is sure to be an exciting matchup, the Vancouver Canucks will take on the Toronto Maple Leafs. We have our stars, they have theirs (ours are better), and we can’t wait to see them go head-to-head.
When: Saturday, February 12th
Where: 800 Griffiths Way
Go for a winter walk
If you want to earn your meal, or if you just enjoy the outdoors, then this is a great option for you. Winter walks in Vancouver are fantastic, and we are fortunate to be one of the few cities in the country where you won’t be freezing after 5 minutes even on a cold day.
We can’t deny that a few hours of slip-sliding around is fun whenever we’re outside. The cross-country trails at Cypress Mountain are among the best and most popular in Canada. During the day, head out for a fun adventure, or enjoy the 7.5km of lit trails at night!
When: Open throughout the weekend
Where: 6000 Cypress Bowl Road, West Vancouver
Watch the Olympics
Yes, the 2022 Winter Olympics began last weekend! Despite being a challenging event, the world’s greatest winter athletes will compete head-to-head in hundreds of events. Where do you begin? Click here to see all the BC athletes competing.
When: On throughout the week
